    I've been pretty much 'cutting' for 2.5 weeks now, eating between 1700-2500 cals per day and working out as normal. Im down to 176lb, which is a 6lb loss, waist size hasnt really changed though. Its so much easier eating for a cut, just some lean protein, veg, and a bit of carbs and fat....i will be pleased when i no longer have to bulk and look bloated and need to shit every 5 minutes. Just thought i would take the edge off my fat before i start all out bulkign again, which wont be long as i look so skinny. Also have no energy in the gym on this diet, only managed 3 x 5 squats and 4 x 5 bench then i had to leave.

    Yeah thats pulling much higher then I was. I was missing the 2nd pull I think. Probably drop the weight next time I do it and pull higher.

    I am just having a hard time motivating myself to get up to my gym. If I owned a house I would do the kunk and just put a gym in the garage. Fuck, I hate commuting to have to work out.

    same here.

    it should get better when I go back to school in a week but I hate having to drive 20 minutes to go to the gym, if I had a barbell at home that would be so awesome.

    Come on Rudolph. Something a little more substantial would be helpful. You can work in sled pulls if you find it helps.

    basically high pulls vs extensions. both are equally usefull.
    yeah you were doing snatch extensions, where you keep your elbows locked.

    If you want to do maximal weight use a clean grip.

    Used olympic plates (the kind that bounce) for the first time today at a new gym I dropped into, they are AMAZING.

    The gym itself is like an adult's playground. 2 ice rinks, basketball courts, badminton courts, indoor soccer (futsal), ping pong, running track, huge cardio/weight area, 6 squat stations, 4 of which equipped with the olympic plates and deadlift platforms.

    Costs twice as much as my current gym, but I am quite interested in joining.

    Why do you need bumper plates for squatting? Am I missing something? Beyond that, that gym sounds pretty badass if you exercise frequently (and do more than just weight lift).

    You don't, only really need them for oly lifts or anything where your going to drop the bar. Or if you want to make deadlifts really easy after the first rep.

    Sorry I was unclear, the platforms are positioned just behind each cage, which also holds all the plates and such. it's not setup with separate platforms and cages.

    Personally, I see no reason to go completely without whey. My post workout meal is always a cup of oats, scoop of chocolate whey, walnuts, frozen berries, milk, cocoa powder, and ice cream. I don't see why I would avoid eating this. I am rather carcino-phobic, too, but I'm comfortable with Dymatize All-Natural. If I really wanted to, I could eat 3 cheese sticks and skip the powder. I just don't know what the argument to do so would be?

    Sometimes I think we lose sight of the forest for the trees on protein. When I was plainly over-eating protein, I was lean as shit and the strength gains were lacking.

    And to edit in: I am not 200lbs so I will admit I am not your target audience.

    And neither am I. I am more curious how these guys are eating all this fucking food in a workable plan.


    lol. I know about the pounds of meat Dr, I was kind of hoping for some sort of meal breakdown from someone in my bracket.

    Im just over 200lb. I do eat pretty much all the time. I do take a lot of whey protein supps and as db gmm said I don't see why anyone wouldn't take them. I take about 6 scoops of whey so like 120g with 500ml of whole milk a day. Breakfast is usually carb heavy with a bit of protein. Post workout meal is always very protein heavy, usually about a pound of meat or fish with a bit of carbs on the side, dinner is again like this. Usually have 2 more meals similar to this with about 50g of protein combined so like say 2 cans of tuna or something. Before bed I usually have a couple scoops of peanut butter and 3 scoops of whey with 250ml of whole milk. Do kind of hate eating like this, but its getting results.

    Todays meal plan was a bit different then usual

    Morning: turkey and stuffing on an english muffin, 250ml of whole milk, 3 scoops of whey and a banana
    Post work out: 250ml of whole milk, 3 scoops of whey, bit of turkey stuffing and a yam
    Dinner: Pasta and lamb, not much lamb
    After Dinner: same as before, pasta and lamb
    2nd meal after dinner: Turkey and stuffing and a bit of peanut butter

    Probably had 2lb of turkey today.

    My diet:

    Meal 1: 8 egg whites, 1 whole egg
    Meals 2-6: 7 oz chicken/2 cans tuna/2 scoops whey + green vegetables
    Some Fat Free Cottage Cheese if necessary before bed

    Already back down to 168.7lbs today. Really excited because I thought it'd take me two weeks to get back down to this after Xmas binging hahaha. Hoping to be down to 167 by tomorrow.

    Still making lifting gains. :slayer:
